Upgrading Device Manager to Version 8.5

Dec 21, 2015
Upgrading the Device Manager server is a simple, in-place upgrade process. The automated Setup Wizard updates your existing Device Manager installation and database in one step. As a best practice, it is advised to backup the database and Device Manager core application directories and save them to a location as a roll-back plan.
Supported Upgrade Paths:
  • 7.1.0 > 8.0.1
  • 8.0.1 -> 8.5.0

If you are running Device Manager version 8.0.1, you should already have the correct version of Java on your server. If you do not, make sure that you are running Oracle Java SE 7 JDK (JDK Download Edition) update 11 and above and Java Cryptography Extension (JCE) Unlimited Strength Jurisdiction Policy Files 7.

Before you upgrade: Before upgrading, make sure that you perform a backup of your Device Manager database and application directory as described here: Backing Up and Restoring Device Manager

  1. As Administrator, run the Device Manager executable installation file.
  2. Follow the directions in the Setup Wizard.
